I know Coral Draw is still commonly used in the fashion industry to illustrate clothes
I don't think Corel is used a lot. But it's sad that Adobe has the monopoly. Some competition would be great for us.
All Adobe programs are dominating the creative field.
I have never used CorelDraw at all. I have been a designer for 7 years now. I use Photoshop along with Illustrator and InDesign mostly.
yes, it is true. I think that Corel is still used by elder designers, but adobe dominates. There is also still problem with importing pdf created in illustrator before..
It's still popular in Eastern Europe with older firms.
I used to use the Corel suite back in the beginning of the 90's when Illustrator was young and Freehand was still Macromedia and powerful. Then Corel was not a good choice for professional printing.
These days Adobe Illustrator is a very good tool for pro designers but i still prefer Freehand when the project allows.
I know that some digital printers and vinyl cutters still use Corel but it sure is not the right tool for analog/digital pre-press process.
Yes It seems true..
CorelDRAW definitely isn't the standard, in my opinion.
I never get CorelDraw files in anymore from anyone professional. Just from one client who likes to make ads for his store himself. His files always give me big problems.
i have started in CD, but then moved to adobe since it didnt suit my needs... but CD is pretty good software for graphic design i think and plenty of people in industry still use it
Here's San Francisco, everybody uses Adobe photoshop and illustrator here
I was never trained to use it. Taught myself Quark then Indesign and Illustrator became the norm
